Thank you for visiting our website


After much deliberation the committee have taken the decision to cancel the Barton under Needwood Steam Rally and Family Festival for 2021. The event was scheduled for 17th and 18th July and, whilst this is obviously several months away, planning had reached the point where infrastructure needed to be booked and deposits paid. When we cancelled last year no one could have anticipated the impact of Coronavirus on every aspect of our lives. Whilst 2021 looks set to improve we felt that trying to go ahead would put the health and safety of the committee, our helpers, exhibitors and visitors in jeopardy; a risk which we would not be able to manage. In taking this decision we anticipate that the event will remain viable for 2022. It sounds a long way off, but, we hope to see you all on 16th and 17th July 2022. In the meantime, stay safe everyone and thank you for your understanding and continued support.

As you are aware, our event raises money for the Midlands Air Ambulance and we are concerned that we will not be the only event that supports them, to be cancelled. We feel strongly that this charity provides an invaluable service, which any one of us could need at any time, so they need all the money they can get. If you feel able to make a donation to them, no matter how small, please use the link below to find out how you can donate or send your donation to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, Hawthorn House, Dudley Rd, Brierley Hill, Stourbridge, DY98BQ,  mentioning our event and making your cheque payable to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity .
